And even though Victoria’s best friend Taylor loves competing, Victoria has lost her taste for it. After a heartbreaking fight with Taylor, Victoria needs a new start — at a new stables. A place where she doesn’t have to worry about anything other than riding. No competition, no drama, no friends. Just horses. Edgewood Stables seems ideal.
